and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one
with the military people. and in talking about veterans and jobs, the work of michelle obama and jill biden, he's bridged this international and domestic divide in ways -- >> i think you're right. the idea of the first lady and dr. biden, the second lady if you will, making a point of almost like in a civil war setting. that women taking an interest in mostly guys are getting injured badly or killed. and being out there and addressing them as individuals that are important years after the battle. >> and that is what's so unpleasant, distasteful if you will, about romney's reply on fox. when he -- imagine you're a troop in afghanistan. you know, it's 110 degrees. you're walking around with a pack and a weapon. imagine you have a loved one who is. and you hear him or her referred to as a laundry list. that's a dehumanizing of what these people are doing. to romney it's just another issue. i don't need to deal with this issue in this speech. it's not a laundry list. it's human beings. >> i like to think -- i remember this story of a super bowl game. i'm watching the pilots go over when they do it.
job speaking to. he comes into this speech with a 69% approval rating. michelle obama the night before has high approval ratings. it's a powerful one-two punch, two of the only national politicians that have ratings like that. most politicians just don't get that high anymore. >> a former republican consult and who made ads for none other than mitt romney came on cnn after the speech and said they should shut down the convention right now. that was the speech that may have elected barack obama. that's pretty out there. >> i wonder if alex is getting calls from his republican friends saying, hey, tone it down, alex. >> it is true. you asked the question about who he's trying to reach. i think that there are no question that there are -- i mean, you probably know some personally, people who are 2008 obama supporters who just are disappointed in him. and disappointed in what he has done. and for president clinton to do this and not just give, i think you're right, a lawyerly explanation of why, but also to give it in a wa i thatting loos like he's emoting and he means it, it's hard to --
